    What are they thinking of?
    My local Spoons has one on gravity and the "cooling jacket" appears to be a sheet of tinfoil covered with a tea towel.
    I assume the Wibbas has similar cooling arrangements.
    I was thinking of going there next week so thanks for letting us all know. I'll do my SE London Overground run instead!

    They had all 50 beers on the first day but the handpump stuff always sells better so rather than replace them they forced the customers to finish the stillage stuff.Day 6 they were 99p a pint.You should have no problems next week.Professional cooling (supplied by Adnams) but tired warm beers.

    What a stupid idea. They certainly didn't do that when I went there for the Autumn fest a few years ago.
    I'll stick to my Overground route in SE London next week!!

    the idea of drinking in a pub full of Australians banging on about rugby and cricket or watching Neighbours doesn't sound very good to me.

    AVOID, as a general rule. No ale, but they do have Coopers in bottles. They turn into vomit bars after 8pm.
